Women, pay no attention!
Fun little Your Lifes Work! film that this time, focuses on what you need in order to work in the transportation industry, more specifically, The Bus, Trucking and Taxi companies. Lets go over the primary first requirement shall we?
1) Be a male.
This is probably the most sexist Your Lifes Work Ive seen yet. Its hilarious how the narrator pauses for effect on the He when mentioning the first requirement on being a Bus driver. You can be a bus driver, cab driver, mechanic, dispatcher, executive, the skys the limit! But you have to be Male! Male! Male! As a matter of fact, we get a tinge of excitement when we DO see a female working in a transportation area job. Of course, shes the secretary of some executive hot-shot. It all becomes rather depressing after awhile.
Aside from that, theres great footage of old time vehicles here. Surprisingly, not much has changed in the shape or function of these vehicles.
